 For Deanna Lowe at FORTUNE. Deanna was great to work with and this was truly a collaboration.

In the beginning was the caricature. This is a cut-out----scissors, museum board and glue. The rest of the peice was done in photo-shop. I knew Obama was to be in love and the mouth wouldn't fly in the long run but at this point I just wanted to have the likeness approved. The mouth is from a photo of a woman lying on her side. The top "lip" is her arm, the lower "lip" her abdomen where her arm was resting. The middle part is the space in between. It's one piece.

 An early take. The turnaround on this was quick. Deana felt the President should be showing more love than depicted here.

The follow-up piece that became the final. It took repeated listenings to "Tammy" to set the right mood.



Too much love.
